India Visas and Work Permits

India Visa
  • All foreign residents entering India must have a visa.
  • The main classes of visas in India are:
    - A tourist visa - intended for anyone who intends to visit India solely as a tourist. The visa is granted for a period of 6 - 12 months without any authorization for an extension.
    - Entry visa - intended for a number of entries into India on frequent occasions.
    - Business visa - intended for instances in which a foreign resident visits India for business purposes, including opening a business. The visa is usually granted for a period of 6 months from the date of entry.
    - Employment visa - intended for a foreign resident who intends to work in India. A letter of invitation from the employer in India should be provided.
  • The visas are usually issued by the Indian representative offices in a foreign country. Applications may be made to the Ministry of the Interior in India for an extension of an existing visa.
  • Young people wishing to study in India must obtain a "Student Visa".


India Residential Permits
  • Foreign residents who wish to live in India for over 180 days must register with the Registration Office in India within 15 days of their entry to India.
  • A medical certificate for AIDS is required.
  • Residential permits in India are issued for a period that corresponds to the period of the employment visa. It is not necessary to obtain a work permit in addition.
  • When the spouse of a foreign resident who holds a business/employment visa wishes to work in India, he/she must submit a separate application for a business/employment visa.

         Comment: Foreign residents of Indian origin receive a PIO card (Persons of Indian Origin card) that permits entry to India without needing a visa.
